Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 today (and 7 NFP)

For publication opinions today (1):

In Tuan Chu v. State of Indiana, an 11-page opinion, Judge Barnes writes:

Tuan Chu appeals his convictions for three counts of Class D felony evasion of income tax, three counts of Class D felony theft, and one count of Class D felony failure to remit or collect sales tax. We affirm.

Chu raises one issue, which we restate as whether double jeopardy principles bar his convictions because the Indiana Department of Revenue (“the Department”) had already imposed nonpayment penalties for his failure to pay taxes. * * *

Chu has not shown that the assessment of nonpayment penalties and the criminal convictions violate United States or Indiana double jeopardy principles. We affirm.
